profundamente superficial


Cuando le digo a la gente que Andy Warhol es uno de mis héroes, la primera reacción de muchos es decir que no es posible, que él no era un artista, que todo lo que hizo fue basura y sha la la, no hablan mas que mierda del señor. Lo que muchos no ven, es que obviamente él no quería ser el siguiente Miguel Ángel, él sólo quería un trabajo y cuando vio que el arte da trabajo y dinero, él sólo quiso ser el empleado del mes, así que explotó su capacidad y en el inter hizo creer a la gente que todo lo ordinario puede ser arte si se muestra de la manera correcta, de una manera diferente, justo lo que hizo él, y como artista, Warhol fue el mejor publicista, he aquí unas citas que lo demuestran.

Ah sí, y yo no soy artista, yo soy una simple publicista que no ejerce y que hace como que escribe a veces.
"I am a deeply superficial person."
"An artist is someone who produces things that people don't need to have but that he, for some reason, thinks it would be a good idea to give them."

"Being born is like being kidnapped. And then sold into slavery. "

"Don't pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches."

"During the 1960s, I think, people forgot what emotions were supposed to be. And I don't think they've ever remembered."
"Isn't life just a series of images that change as they repeat themselves?"
"Dying is the most embarrassing thing that can ever happen to you, because someone's got to take care of all your details."

"I always wished I had died, and I still wish that, because I could have gotten the whole thing over with."

"I love Los Angeles. I love Hollywood. They're beautiful. Everybody's plastic, but I love plastic. I want to be plastic."

"I never read. I just look at pictures."

"I'd asked around 10 or 15 people for suggestions. Finally one lady friend asked the right question, "Well, what do you love most?" That's how I started painting money."
"I'm afraid that if you look at a thing long enough, it loses all of its meaning."

"I've decided something: Commercial things really do stink. As soon as it becomes commercial for a mass market it really stinks."

"If you want to know all about Andy Warhol, just look at the surface of my paintings and films and me, and there I am. There's nothing behind it."

"It's the movies that have really been running things in America ever since they were invented. They show you what to do, how to do it, when to do it, how to feel about it, and how to look how you feel about it."
"Land really is the best art."

"Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art."

"My idea of a good picture is one that's in focus and of a famous person."

"Fantasy love is much better than reality love. Never doing it is very exciting. The most exciting attractions are between two opposites that never meet."

"They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself."

"When I got my first television set, I stopped caring so much about having close relationships."

"I paint anybody, anybody that asks me. "

"Why do people think artists are special? It's just another job."

"It's the place where my prediction from the sixties finally came true: "In the future everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes." I'm bored with that line. I never use it anymore. My new line is, "In fifteen minutes everybody will be famous."
-Comentario acerca del Studio 54 y su famosa cita.

"People should fall in love with their eyes closed. Just close your eyes. Don't look."

Yo soy una estudiante de periodismo que odia al periodismo, por cierto a la que le gustaría ser escritora pero que sus letras apestan...

Lo que no saben aquellos que critican a Warhol es que si no fuera por su corriente, la sociedad estaría perdida (bueno más) y no sabría que ese pop, fue la gran explosión de un identidad, que con el tiempo logró inspirar a otros pintores, como Basquiat...
